As a resident of Scarborough I would like to voice my utter dismay and disappointment in the borough council.

It is time to pause, stop and think before the final decision is taken to demolish the Futurist.

Letter: Could more be done to save the Futurist theatre?

I am sure I am not alone in wanting Scarborough, as a town, to pause, stop and think before we make a final decision to demolish the Futurist and lose the building and the venue, forever.

Avoid seagull attacks by not eating in the streets.

Letter: Eating in the street is asking for trouble

Reading the letters and articles in The Scarborough News recently, it appears that the majority of seagull attacks are on people eating in the street. Surely a simple way to avoid attacks is not to eat in the street.

Myself and my other half, Janice, were victims of a gull attack alongside Whitby Harbour. Janice was taking a pizza slice lunch when a gull swooped and took the slice in one swoop - with such force that the downward draught from its wings partially dislodged my glasses.

Letter: Extra cost to clean gull mess from home

I moved to Filey in 2014 from York. I was very surprised that some people let seagulls nest on their roofs.

Council did not test public safety legislation.

Letter: The council can act to protect people over gull problem

I would like to pass on my thanks to Kevin Hollinrake MP for ascertaining the government’s view on whether a seagull cull would be allowed as published in last week’s Scarborough News. His intervention followed my passing on complaints from a Hunmanby resident who expressed concerns about the state of Huntriss Row in Scarborough. I would also like to thank Cllr Bill Chatt for being willing to listen when I forwarded on the complaint. For the record, her complaint pre-dated your newspaper articles calling for action on these matters.
